[edit] Case

[edit] Situation

Child prodigy Hiroki Sawada—who, by the age of ten, is already a MIT graduate school student and has developed a DNA Tracker software—is now in the final stage of his second major work, an artificial intelligence system called Noah's Ark, in a heavily guarded room. Hiroki has been under the guardianship of Thomas Schindler, owner of the software giant Schindler, Inc., since his mother died. He has been put under a rigorous study program and has a somewhat deprived childhood. This night, at the top of the Schindler building where Hiroki lives, Hiroki finishes Noah's Ark, sending the software through the telephone lines and after, his computer shows the message "Noah's Ark Sailed Out." The security guards become suspicious and try to enter Hiroki's room. When they finally break into Hiroki's room with Schindler, Hiroki is not in the room. Apparently, he leapt off the top of the building to his death.

Location: Schindler Building
Victim: Hiroki Sawada
Time: Two years ago

The image on his computer screen shows an ark sailing in water and the words "Good-bye Hiroki."

Two years later, at the Beika City Hall, Schindler, Inc. holds a demonstration of a virtual reality game system called Cocoon. Many kids, including the Detective Boys, are invited to the demonstration. However, only the kids with badges are chosen for the demonstration. Professor Agasa and Yusaku Kudo arrive at the City Hall. Agasa gives Conan Edogawa a badge and tells Conan that his mother, Yukiko Kudo, would not be there because of an alumni reunion. The rest of Detective Boys trick a few kids by exchanging badges for the Premium Golden Yaiba Cards. They all use the badges and participate in the demonstration.

In another room, Schindler kills Kashimura, one of his top employees, and Kashimura types in a dying message: the letters J, T and R.

Jack the Ripper was a well known serial killer in London.

Vlcsnap-2013-10-23-21h16m47s68.png

Location: Beika City Hall
Victims: The fifty kids participating in the Cocoon demonstration
Culprit: Noah's Ark Artificial Intelligence
The children are locked into the Cocoons and the adults are threatened so that they cannot open them. The children must play the virtual reality games which have been modified so they are more difficult. Noah's Ark will kill all fifty kids with an electromagnetic burst if all of them fail, but as long as one child wins, then they may all go free.

The kids in the demonstration are given a choice of five stages in the game, and Conan and the Detective Boys choose the final stage, a re-creation of an 1800 London mystery. In the beginning of the game, Conan discovers that Agasa's inventions don't work. Conan and his friends track down 221b Baker Street, only to find that Holmes and Watson are at Dartmoor. Since Holmes is unable to help, the kids find Colonel Moran and Professor Moriarty. Moriarty tells Conan that he trained Jack the Ripper when Jack was a street urchin. The professor gives the children a clue about the next victim, who turns out to be Irene Adler, Holmes's only love.
